Adobe has released a new security update that addresses Adobe Flash Player 10 vulnerabilities. Five exploits will be patched on Windows, Mac and Linux platforms with this security update. These exploits affect Adobe Flash Player 10.0.12.36 and earlier versions on Windows and Mac. They also affect Adobe Flash Player 10.0.15.3 and earlier versions on Linux.
As per Adobe Security Bulletin, the buffer overflow issue caused when a malicious SWF file is loaded to allow arbitrary code execution will get patched. Any 'Denial of Service' attack possibility through an input validation flaw gets fixed.
Flash Player's display of Setting Manager residing on local computer but usable from Adobe.com has been fixed to avoid any Clickjacking exploit possibility.
In Windows, the mouse pointer display that might lead to potential of Clickjacking attack gets fixed. The user privilege escalation possibility through information disclosure is resolved on Linux platform.
Users of Flash Player on all three platforms are advised to download the latest Adobe Flash Player 10.0.22.87 from Adobe
